Khalaasis are the entertainers of all the microbuses. From their devil-may-care attitude to the questionable fashion choices, they come as a package deal with every public transportation along with the driver.
That being said, here are a few namuna khalaasis that you see.
1 The Broken Radio
These are the ones who would chant ‘Ratnapark, Ratnapark, Ratnapark’ until your ears start to bleed.
2 The Rishi Dhamala
They will argue, fight and make a sure comment on each and every one of you until you reach your destination.
3 The Suitcase
After getting 100 people in a 15-seater microbus, they will still say, ‘Aunuhos, seat khali chha’.
4 The Maze Runner
This one will take you through Swayambhu on your way to Bhaktapur, just to avoid traffic. Good luck reaching home on time.
5 The Naagin
They move with the wind, half torso stuck out of the window, screaming for you.
6 The CCTV
He is going to make sure you spelt your name right on your ID and have updated your pic on your Facebook. #Toughlove
7 The DDLJ
He will pull you in the micro like Raj pulled Simran in DDLJ, all theatrics included. Never let this microbus go. It’s a keeper!
8 The Beep-Beep
This person needs to walk around with a censorship warning on his mouth. Period.
9 The Traffic Controller
There’s always that one khalaasi who is better at untangling the paradox of Nepali traffic better than the policemen themselves. Can we have a round of applause, please?
